Top 3 Finesse Fishing Techniques - Zaldain

Bass tournament angler Chris Zaldain loves finesse fishing. One of the reasons is that it catches all kinds of bass, all species (including the commonly saught-after largemouth, smallmouth and spotted varieties) as well as all sizes. Chris shows a photo of a 12lb. largemouth he caught in California with a dropshot to prove his point. Finesse baits look so natural that often reluctant fish can still be coaxed into biting them.

Hey Pete! I just want to say thank you for creating such a great platform as Bass University TV. I subscribed after Bobby Lane won the Bassmaster Open at the Kissimmee Chain last month which I fished as a Co-Angler. I’ve been getting a lot out of it.
